- Donald Trump pardons Lil Wayne, Kodak Black and others
President Donald Trump of the United States of America has pardoned a list of Americans among which is rapper, Lil Wayne, and several others.
Trump revealed some of his list of pardons on Tuesday (Jan. 19), his final day in office, and Wayne was among the number of people who will have their federal charges or sentences absolved.
Weezy as he’s fondly called was awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to a federal firearms charge in December, 2020, but he will now be exonerated.
Other top name in Trump’s pardon list include rapper rapper Kodak Black, former White House aide Steve Bannon and former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, who was serving a 28-year prison term on corruption charges.
The pardon of Lil Wayne may seem like a surprise to some but looks like it may have been a couple months in the making.
The award-winning rapper endorsed Donald Trump for re-election just a week before the 2020 presidential election in October, 2020.
Bradford Cohen, who is the attorney for both Kodak Black and Lil Wayne, confirmed the pardon by Donald Trump.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden is set to be inaugurated as the new President (46th) of the United States of America as Donald Trump exits the White House.
